getting ready

I have big sewing/ quilting plans for this week. I finally decided it's time to become more serious about FMQ and practice!!!! It's a biggie, I'm telling you. I hate practicing, it always seems like such a waste of time. I know, totally irrational.

So, here's what I've decided. Instead of making small quilt sandwiches for practice only, I made three baby quilt tops and plan on basting them and using those to try out some fun patterns. 

This way I will get some practice done, while getting these charity baby quilts finished at the same time. Win win, I hope. 

Here they are, all pressed and ready to be basted. And you know what? I'm actually kind of excited about this new learning experience.  I will definitely let you know how it all went.

Also, I wanted to let you know about a new fun blog hop my friend Heidi started today.

Fabric Mutt

It's all about desks and study/ work spaces and how to make them prettier and better organized. I'm so excited to be a part of this blog hop and thought I'd share a little sneak peek of what I'm working on.
